Tuesday December 20, 2016 “Faith of the Wise”

Matthew 2:1-6  Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’”
   The Wise men travelled many miles because they had faith in the sign from heaven – the star. They also showed faith in the word of God when they stopped in Jerusalem and discovered that the new king they sought was to be born in Bethlehem.
Pray today that during this Christmas season people in America who are not yet Christian in their faith will be willing to take the time and make the effort to discover the beauty and holiness of Jesus Christ.  If one seeks, they will find.  We who are Christians should always be ready to share truth with people who ask, like the scribes and chief priests did in Jerusalem.
